    Jimmy Introducing Black Dog

    BC, You may need to rephrase that statement my friend...what Jimmy wanted, Jimmy got. Times have changed now.....he wants a reunion, but it doesn't seem he'll be getting one......

    [3:If I recall correctly , this is the one show on the LA run that Mike Millard missed........... Oops.........I have a correction....Mike Millard missed 2 shows from the 6 night LA run. It seems he was not at the shows from the 22nd AND the 26th. Sorry about that..

    1: Unknown taper (listed as such at many Zep sites) 2: I don't know 3:If I recall correctly , this is the one show on the LA run that Mike Millard missed. As for sources for the other nights I know of 2 or 3 sources for the 21st, 3 for the 22nd, 1 for the 25th, 2 for the 26th, & 1 for the 27th. Again this is info I recall from reading posts/info at various Zep sites so............. 4: Not sure what info LA tapers were privy too but I will ASSume that there were numerous tapers at all shows but more releases for the 23rd due to Moon's appearence & the fact that the fine quality of FBO caused more people to "share" their tapes???????? 5: Good question. This is disappointing to me because IMHO the Zep shows at MSG were up there with the LA run; its the tapers that weren't. I have seen tons of shows in the NY tristate area (NY, NJ & CT.) along with philly & Maryland, and the sound at MSG (although it has been improved greatly over the years) was never as good as the others. But the atmosphere at MSG is unsurpassed IMHO. I believe 3hrs of Lunacy is a member here. Hopefully he'll see this & chime in as he knows his Zep bootleg facts. Also you might know of this site, but visit here for info/reviews. http://www.uuweb.led...in.us/index.htm

    Casey Anthony - Not Guilty of First Degree Murder

    Prosecution should never have tried for the murder 1/death penalty. A lesser charge or punishment might have had more chance of a guilty verdict. Most jurors need concrete proof before sending someone to their death, even a POS like her. Do I think she did it? Yes. Did the prosecution prove beyond a reasonable doubt she did it? Not IMO, & obviously not in the minds of the jury either. Told my wife she would get off for murder, but not the child endangerment charges. Now that suprised me that she was found "not guilty" on those charges. Your 2 yr. old is missing for a month before you report it?????? How is that not endangerment???? Hopefully karma comes quickly for this POS, before she can make millions on book deals, movie deals & interviews.

    Strider, The answer is no. Mike Millard did record this concert but his recording didn'y start until SIBLY. The reason being he either had the recorder off or the pause button on, & didn't realize it until SIBLY. The source for the bootleg lp FBO is from a different taper. Somewhere on the internet i saw a comparison of all AUD sources (5 or 6 I think) & what lp's/cd's were sourced from these different recordings .........if I find it again I'll post it for you....but I do know the lp version of FBO is not Mike Millards.

    Robert Plant Band of Joy Tour 2011

    What a show this past saturday at the Beacon in NYC. Mr. Plant was in fine voice, and the members of the Band Of Joy all excell at their respective instruments. The played for slightly under 2 hrs, and except for the opening song of Black dog, I loved every minute of the show. (I just do not like the reworked version of Black Dog.Too slow, too different from the original IMHO). The crowd was loud, & where I was sitting, very much into the show & music.....especially for the Zep tunes. Those songs brought down the house. We did have these 2 young girls, 3 rows or so in front of us, who would SCREAM whenever Robert talked or posed or farted. It sounded like being at a Beatles concert where all one can hear is the sound of women screaming. Not sure if they could be heard throughout the Beacon, but it wouldn't suprise me if that were the case. Some highlights for me were Angel Dance, Please Read The Letter, In The Mood, Rock N Roll, Houses Of The Holy, Gallows Pole, & my 2 favorite songs of the night ...........Tangerine & Ramble On. Ramble On............ I just can not describe the feeling that washed over me when he played that tune. I thought i was transported back in time, Mr. Plant was that good on this song. His vocals soared throughout this rendition. The band rocked during this tune (not that they didn't throughout the show, but this song is one of my fave Zep tunes and I thought it was played really well .) Robert would sing "Ramble On" & left the crowd to sing the "Nows the time, the time is now" part. Then He would sing "Sing My song" leaving us the "Going round the world, gonna find my girl" etc. etc. During & after Tangerine & Ramble On I got emotional. Because they were so good.........because I never saw my favorite band perform live, & because I never will. ........... because after seeing this show I know Plant can do a reunion and be great at it. ............... also because I know his heart & soul aren't into it, and it is a bit sad that we'll most likely never see him perform these songs with Page & Jones ever again. Mr. Plant did them so well, so good, so strongly, that I was happy to see him perform these 2 songs, and ace them!!!!!!! At the same time sad that we will not see him do them with the guys who wrote the songs with him, many moons ago. If you have a chance to see this show, and are undecided, by all means go. It was a great concert!!
  8. Sorry I missed out on the interviews....(note to self....next time take your own car into the city so you can leave when you want to leave). My wife & drove into Manhattan with a friend & his girlfriend. Girlfriend had a wee bit too much to drink & didn't want to hang after the show, so I missed out on the interviews. I did see your set-up & we did wait for a bit but there were a few people waiting so we had to leave. I did get to see SuperDave after the show & we chatted for a few minutes. 2nd time we hung out after a show, the first being Plant & the Band Of Joy at the Bowery Ballroom. Looking forward to seeing the results of your work!

    Destroyer

    I have an lp from that show called "Sweet Jelly Roll". It was released by Rock Solid Records in the mid eighties. To the best of my recollection( it has been a while since I've heard it) there are no Plantations between songs on this version. It too has the cut in to the beginning of TSRTS. I'll check & confirm later.
  10. This is good news. Here's wishing Mr. Plant throws a few "rockers" in the mix. Hopefully! Please!

    Best Audience recorded shows

    Thanks for the info Nutrocker. It is too bad that these shows you mention most likely will not be shared. Not sure what happened to make the taper hold onto these shows, but it is a shame that someone @#%&ed it up for the rest of us by pissing off the taper. How great would it be to get a 71 concert with the audio quality of 2/28/75? That would be sweet! Here's hoping that Mr. Taper changes his mind one day. Thanks again for your insight.

    Best Audience recorded shows

    A lot of good suggestions here so far. Just wanted to add that the AUD recording from 2/28/75 is really, really good also. I know it was mentioned before in an earlier post but just wanted to throw it out there again. It is not as well known as the great Millard recordings from LA 75 & 77, but it is a good one. Supposedly the taper of this show has one from the 77 tour also, but refuses to share it.
  13. 8 of us are going to the saturday night show at the Beacon....we'll keep an eye out for you & your recorder!
  14. I was also at these ARMS shows at MSG. It was amazing the response Page received when he came on stage. The Garden was shaking!!! The sound of the cheers & screams & applause are something I have yet to again experience. When Jimmy played the opening notes to Stairway, I thought the roof would cave in. It was deafening, and is something I will never forget.. ......you couldn't even hear the music it was so loud. The entire Garden singing the words to STH was the single greatest concert experience I have witnessed/heard!! Yeah it wasn't perfect, & Mr. Page really didn't look healthy, but it didn't matter. Jimmy Page was back on stage, at the Garden, playing music!!! He could have farted & burped into the mic & still the place would have went berserk. The Garden was welcoming back their hero after 6yrs away.

    Jimmy to tour in 2011

    God I hope Mr. Page really does something soon........an album, a tour, a few shows.....anything. I saw him at the ARMS concert, solo, w/ the Firm, both Page & Plant tours, and finally with the Black Crowes ( at Jones Beach Amphitheatre 7/10/2000......if you have not heard this show search it out....awesome playing by Jimmy & the Crowes). But that was over 10yrs ago.....it is time to get out there & rock like we know you can!!!! Plus he isn't, and neither am I, getting any younger.
